Monday, August 14

Both of our trips today consisted of multiple minke whales, a fin whale and a trio of humpback whales surrounded by beautiful ocean conditions. This morning we saw 4 minke whales, a fin whale, 15 harbor seals and 3 resting humpback whales. After a few looks at multiple minke whales popping up around us we got a brief look at a familiar fin whale.

The marine life continued with seals EVERYWHERE before we wrapped up the morning with Spoon, Jabiru and Geometry, all humpback whales, napping in the calm seas.

This afternoon we started the trip with an ocean sunfish, saw 3 minke whales, multiple harbor seals, a grey seal, a sneaky fin whale and the same 3 humpback whales again.

The spectacular ocean conditions provided the perfect backdrop to enjoy wildlife all day today.
